Great to meet you too @Ahmad Neratand look forward to seeing you on future drives. Thank you to @GauravSonifor executing a very unique and enjoyable drive. If it wasn’t for the “commentators curse” at the end it may have been a uneventful morning however it’s those last moments which is what makes these drives so enjoyable as everyone bands together to help each other out. And as you can see from the map below we were true as could be in holding 24.8 degrees. Next trip is 24.8 degrees squared 🤣
I like your calm & composed handling of the senior LC 76 👍🏻, treating it as a precious gem being navigated through a fun journey to reach the rewarding exit 🏆 . I'm still at the euphoria phase after getting my LC 100 back, especially with the Unichip and open cone air filter removed, so at times I push too much on the throttle worrying I don't have enough speed when in fact i have enough 😂 Great driving together, until next time, fellow LandCruiser
Thanks @GauravSoni for organising this drive, it was an enjoyable TTT. super Soft sand areas as expected. @Anoop Nair executed sl brilliantly. Thanks for @Mehmet Volga , @Benjamin and @Joseph Raju for the support and keeping the convoy in order. All drivers did amazing in today drive, the maturity of the drivers and the sand driving skills is an ongoing practice... Patience and safe practice would take all of the drivers for different level of skills and self-confidence. Im very happy of being a member of this club.. it was nice meeting u @Bravoecho and @Stumpy Paj I took some nice and interesting pic for @Gary F car check the drive gallery's. 😉 till next drive, stay safe and tuned for next challenge🤗🤗 Ahmad
Great drive, with great convoy, kept moving, without any shovel and tug. Everyone was on time, deflated and ready for briefing. Started moving towards pink rock, where we climbed, and all made it to the top easily, and from first attempt. After that started moving towards big red, all went nicely. Only few refusals, managed in no time, with the guidance of great support of @DP1011 and @Sunil Mathew . Thank you very much Deepak and Sunil. Glad to meet new members @Deepak Eswar @Cristian @george charbel @Juan R who did great. Nice meeting you again @Rk ram @Nadeem Ansari . Thank you @Abdelghani for great SL. Below screen shot of the drive today. Nice weekend.
🌻|||||||🌻 looks forward ☺️
Second time in a row, driving in Sweihan… With @Ale Vallecchifor an afternoon far away from work and for this morning with @JeromeFJ… Always amazing to drive through these high and virgin dunes, feeling confident, following great Leaders as @Ale Vallecchiand @JeromeFJ… As written by @JeromeFJ, we drove this morning through a mixed terrain, long and high dunes then short, high and technical dunes with soft sand… Always obliged to manually shift gears from 4H to 4L, I thank @Chris Wingfor his patience, behind me, while shifting my gears… After 6 months carrying my jerrycan full of petrol for nothing, I was pleased to fuel @Bjoernand to feel useful, during the break at the pond. At the end, seeing @Zedflying and not feeling taking off at my turn, I took a little bit on my left and I got stacked on the crest. Thanks again to @Chris Wingfor his quick tug 😉 Even if departure was very early from Dubai to join Sweihan, I took a real pleasure to drive with all of you… I wish you a nice week-end
Which Jeep model you planning for @Frederic 😂
Dear Desert Drivers, Thank you for joining the drive this morning. It was a true desert experience, in this mixed terrain. Nice flow in the big dunes to start, as a warm up, and then, passing the sabkha, this impressive set of high dunes. Climbing the face and going down was relatively easy for the group of experienced IM drivers, even if the soft sand required full concentration to keep the cars straight in the descend, but the real challenge was still to come, when we entered the dunes themselves. Climbing per sections, with a sand becoming more soft after each car, little space to maneuver. This is when skills were required, and not only power. Going down on the other side, we met @Imran Kashif, waiting for us close to Sweihan pond. After a small break by the pond, we had another set of these challenging tall dunes, before to continue in a more relaxed mode, cruising the white sands of the Fayah area. @Jaro Tuzinskythank you for the second lead, you were holding the convoy when required , until I found a proper route. @Krishna R, excellent driving and control all along the drive; I did not hear you on the radio, which is a good sign ! @Ignacio Quindós, excellent drive also for your first IM, well done @Bjoern you and your car had better days, but you went through the obstacles with calm and determination, without loosing your sense of humor @Imran Kashif, you missed the big dunes, but thank you for joining halfway @Zed, @Fabien Monleau, @Chris Wing always good to have experienced drivers in challenging situations. You have shown one more time that you can be autonomous at the back of the convoy, supporting others when needed, Thanks a lot! Enjoy the rest of the weekend, and see you next time !
@Frederic put the Safaris up front to let the villages know we come in peace, and the ‘Muricans in the rear because they always leave chaos behind 🤓
Very nicely arranged convoy
Yes but a few odd ones are in there too ! Perhaps we can convince him to sell their cars so it completely matches up 😜
Pleasure is all mine Mr Essam and I am glad that you enjoyed it . I loved your passion and commitment to this hobby . Hope to see you again inshallah

Good to see you brother after such a long time . generally nice trip . Compliant safe convoy and more than that we always learn something to take it home with us . have a good week ahead till next time 🙏 Seidam
Another fun drive by the master @Hisham Masaad , thanks for the slopes and climbs ! Driving in Nizwa big red area after a while. A well executed 2nd lead by Hisham Jr - @Abdelghani...i believe every singl,e warning from hisham was acknowledged with a "copied" on the radio ... everyone drove beautifully and at their best , resulting in a very fluid drive, and very few stoppages/refusals well managed by @DP1011 in his usual ever present style! Good to drive with all of you @Deepak Eswar @Cristian @Nadeem Ansari @Juan R @Rk ram @george charbel
Looks like @Frederic sorted the participants by car model and posted the convoy list. All neatly arranged by the car model. For an person who has OCD for lists nothing can be more of a magnificent list than this. The best.
CONVOY LIST @munkybizness@Rajesh NG@Ahmed Wagdy@DanielN@Richard Franks@Hisham Masaad@Frans M@Nadeem Ansari@Tom V@Marketa Dobesova@Pacific@Andrei S@Looper This time it looks we have an FJ Cruiser Supervisor @Hisham Masaad and a Jeep Supervisor @Looper Please don't forget to deflate to 25psi only, and not to 10-12psi like we usually do. Offroad Flag is also not required this time. We will be using Channel 2 - 446.031 Mhz for our comms. See you all tomorrow morning !
On my way Sorry I wakeup late on my way
Nice!!! I have the remaining convoy at the start of the entry gate!
Good morning, just checking we are in the right place?, at the pin drop point but only 4 cars here
first wait until you have confirmation Insurance will cover 100% of all repairs. Once confirmed, browse Facebook Marketplace, Telegram Buy & Sell Offroad Cars, etc.. you will see ads like 8,000dhs Cherokee, 10,000dhs PathFinder, 15,000dhs Jeeps. Buy it since you need a weekend car anyways, then sell it again when it's winter and once you get your Gladiator back 😊
Dear Dune surfers! @Bravoecho @Stumpy Paj @Anoop Nair @Joseph Raju @Gary F @Benjamin @Ahmad Nerat welcome to the drive! you are among the few who are ready to take on this technical challenge. Thanks @Mehmet Volga for joining up as well!! Repeating this : Please follow the https://goo.gl/maps/FReXSwN6iFgt8aa19 location to show you the route on GMAPS. The convoy order is as below: I am expecting temperatures to pick up to 39 deg at around 8:30 am.. Thus i suggest everyone to be deflated and ready to move by 5:05 AM. see you all tomorrow!
